The Legend Of Zelda Hits The Big 80's

The Legend Of Zelda Hits The Big 80's

The Legend of Zelda is one of the most iconic game franchises in history. Yet, for all its accolades from over the years, it seemed to be missing some key elements: Namely self-absorbed monologues, blatant cultural stereotyping, and side-scrolling dance numbers. Well, the folks behind this fan-made trailer seem to recognize that deficit and have brought it to life with The Legend of Zelda! (That's "Zelda" with an exclamation point.) Taking 80's teen romp favorites like Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, Ferris Beuller's Day Off, Say Anything, with a slight dash of The Karate Kid and throwing them into a blender with Zelda gives us this would-be lost Reagan-era pubescent screen gem that we didn't know we wanted. These guys previously gave us God of War as a Wes Anderson-type indie movie and a take on Mario in Inglourious Plummers. This does not disappoint.

Don't put another dime in the jukebox, gag me with a spoon, and do the safety dance in the heat of the moment! Miyamoto just dropped his banjo!

Also, be sure to check out their shot-for-shot comparison video of the original films they parody.

Would your feelings about video game movies change if they were more like this?

    They really should make a legend of zelda movie that would be awesome. Also I wonder why it is called the legend of zelda when it is link doing all the work. I think that name should be changed to the legend of link. It is telling the legend of link and his adventures and not the surrender and capture of zelda. Who's with me?

    Epic. Just epic, I'd watch this movie fifty times even though it isn't a real movie. xD
